Rick Shrader‘s Review:
Wagner, pastor of Calvary Church in Charlotte, NC and former Promise Keepers employee, is speaking out against the CEO style pastor and for the Shepherd style pastor. I enjoyed his statements against using current business and leadership techniques to build churches, including daring to question evangelical gurus such as George Barna (whom I have often thought more secular than Christian). He is very strong on special calling and even tries to temper Guinness in The Call. I certainly can identify more with Wagner’s shepherd-pastor than with the common church-growth selfishness.
